California 9B redwood coastal mountain garden (hot dry summers and cold wet windy winters). I bought (3) of these spring 2022. They all arrived in nice condition and equal in size. I planted them next to each other in the same bed - and got a Papa Bear, Mama Bear & Baby Bear. LOL... It was fun and funny to watch. The bed is slightly sloped and uneven so I attribute that to the different growth rates. Regardless, all three struggled at first with black spot once I planted them. I removed the mulch with intention to replace and make sure water was even, but got behind on my project and the bed got left no mulch and drip water to each plant base. I treated a few times during the summer with 3-in-1 for Roses, fertilized a few times, and kept the foliage trimmed up to be away from the ground. I also regularly pruned Papa and Mama to similar forms and let Baby catch up. All three bloomed! Lovely colors which changed throughout the life of the flower. This made the plant look like it had 4 or five different colored flowers at any given time. Papa grew thick stems; Baby is petite but healthy. They kept most leaves during winter and have handled extreme wet, windy, and sometimes freezing, west facing winter exposure. They are a neighborhood favorite - I can't wait until they all get bigger and grow together.
Suñorita® Rose Rosa x
Sun-drenched color on an easy care rose!
In our 5+ years of trialing it, no one could walk by Suñorita rose without saying, "What IS that?!" So once it met our standards for disease resistance and non-stop blooming, making it available for your garden was a no brainer. The elegant, classically shaped buds are red orange and open to reveal a soft orange bloom made up of several dozen petals, perfectly shaped to form a classic rose "bowl." As the blooms age, they develop a golden tone. Deep green foliage covers the sturdy, medium-sized plant and easily resists common rose diseases like black spot or powdery mildew. Blooms from spring through frost without deadheading.
As seen in the Chica Bonita ad.

Plant Suñorita rose as a striking specimen, flowering hedge, or as a backdrop for other plants. It also works well in perennial gardens to provide non-stop blooms.Maintenance Notes:
Prune Suñorita rose in early spring, just as the new growth begins, to ensure that the growth for the season comes from the thicker, more vigorous buds farther down on the plant. The plant can be pruned in fall as well, though fall pruning of roses is generally recommended more in warm climates.
Like all Proven Winners roses, Suñorita is highly disease resistant, but should be planted in full sun (min. 6 hours a day; 8+ hours preferred) and with good air circulation to ensure the very best performance. Deadheading is not required for continuous blooming.Suñorita® Rosa x 'CHEWGEWEST' USPP 31,005, Can 6,518
